• Bubble sort example. This algorithm could be used to sort the following list: 3, 2, 4, 1, 5. The first loop of the algorithm would produce: 3, 2, 4, 1, 5 (2<3 so the two values are swapped)
  • Apr 26, 2018 · Bubble sort is the simplest sorting algorithm, it compares the first two elements, if the first is greater than the second, swaps them, continues doing (compares and swaps) for the next pair of adjacent elements. It then starts again with the first two elements, compares, swaps until no more swaps are required.
  • Use the textfield to type in a number and add it by either pressing ENTER or by clicking on the "Add" button. You can also add 10 random numbers at once by clicking on the "10 Random Keys" button. Overall you can add up to 50 keys. The "Sort" button starts to sort the keys with the selected algorithm. Alternatively you can sort 100 random keys ...
  • Sorting algorithms can be used for collections of numbers, strings, characters, or a structure of any of these types. Bubble sort is based on the idea of repeatedly comparing pairs of adjacent elements and then swapping their positions if they exist in the wrong order. Assume that A [] is an unsorted array of n elements.
  • Sorted by: 1. Your calculations are correct (and consequently, so are you), but you should be able to avoid the worst-case scenario. For example, pre-compute the number of unrespected order in a first run and choose to go in the other direction if it's bigger than half the size of your list.
